If resveratrol can cure prostate cancer, does it mean it cannot cure any other cancer? If so, then it should be take only by men and not women. These are all marketing gimmick which has no substance at all. The benefits go beyond the relationship between resveratrol and prostate cancer. We will see how it works, the hurdles to take its full advantage and how to overcome them.
Resveratrol is a polyphenolic compound. It is produced de novo by the seed producing plants like grapes and peanuts when under attack by pathogens and fungi. It is present in the skin of red grapes while its quantity is very minimal in peanuts.
The pathogens and fungi that attack the plants also attack human. That is how the research started and separated this compound and found its great antioxidant benefits.
How the weeds destroy the paddy field if not weeded out, the same way there are many weeds in our body. While we inherit many weeds, we also inhale many weeds. These are all due to external pollution. The air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat are all so much contaminated that it is now becoming next to impossible to reverse our lifestyle diseases. We wrinkle at 30, grey at 35, have heart attacks at 40 and stroke at 45. We live an unhealthy life and leave.
